The plans are summarized of eleven urban agencies participating in the Urban Corridor Demonstration Program the purpose of which is to test and demonstrate the concerted use of available highway traffic engineering and transit operations technology for relieving traffic congestion in radial corridors serving major urban centers. The program which is directed to metropolitan areas of over 200,000 population, emphasizes low-capital intensive improvements rather than new major construction to demonstrate whether rapidly implementable, relatively inexpensive projects can effectively relieve urban traffic congestion. This report which is presented with the purpose of apprising public officials and citizens of ideas that will help relieve peak-hour traffic, discusses highlights of proposed projects, provides relevant information for prospective applicants and lists of participating agencies and proposed projects.
